RE: Who here eats better while RV'ing than at home?

You are not alone. My wife always fixes her signature dishes when we go camping. We often watch other campers grilling their hot dogs while we are dining on lobster, chicken cordon bleu, bananas foster, or other haute cuisine that my wife loves to make. Miles

RE: On the road generator problem. Help?

Ken, could you post an update on this problem when you get a chance? I would like to know what the cause is when you find it out. Miles

RE: Propane tank full?

Check and make sure that you don't have a lot of air in the tank. Miles

RE: Colorado to Taos, NM

Where is the best bass fishing that won't cost an arm and a leg? Miles

RE: Colorado to Taos, NM

That is a good route. The view of Blanca Peak is beautiful. La Veta Pass isn't much more than a big hill as far as Colorado passes go. Have a safe trip. Miles

RE: Old RV Spec Sheet?

I've never seen anything like that. The best sources of information on older RV's are older people. As far as chassis go, class A's were pretty much Dodge or Chevy. I've had both, will be glad to help with any specific questions. Miles

RE: Running both A/Cs

I would first make sure that the generator is getting enough gas. You might have a problem with the fuel lines or fuel pump. Try running the fuel pump into a gas can to make sure that there is no crud in the line. Swap it out with a new one and see what happens. (You should always keep a new one on hand anyway.) Try running it out of a gas can. Check the air filter and air intake. Then try a different load as was suggested. Add together some electric heaters. You may have a problem with one or both of the AC's. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: Voltage Regulator Troubleshoot

Did you just have the Lestek rebuilt or did you get a new alternator? As for testing, I usually just put the red test lead of my meter to the output connection on the alternator and the black one to some convenient place on the engine. But there is more to it. On Monday, contact customer support at PennTex Industries, 1-877-590-7366 (in Fort Worth TX) I have heard that they can help us poor lost souls with Lestek alternators and voltage regulators. Hopefully you can talk to an old-timer who can walk you through it. If they send you some .pdf's could you send me copies? Let us know how things go. Miles On Edit: I found it on another forum. Search on: 6116-9135+4-step+test+90.pdf (Could someone help me with a clicky?)

RE: Voltage Regulator Troubleshoot

I understand the regulator you have, I have the same kind. Was it a Lestek alternator that you replaced? So the new alternator also relies on the remote regulator? I have not had any trouble with mine. With the engine running, I would check the voltage at the alternator, the chassis battery and at the house battery. I don't trust the dash gauges much. Let us know what you find. Some of the original Lestek literature is still available on the net. Find it and you should get a good idea what the output voltages should be. Good luck with your repairs. Miles

RE: Attaching insulated bus bar to metal box

Drill out the pilot holes and use whatever size screw works the best.

Screw them in from the back? Miles

RE: Replacing fridge.. might require sledgehammer.

I've done both. Between the two I would choose removing the door frame, which is not all that difficult. Would it fit if you removed the trim? Miles

RE: The search continues off to Fla.

Personally, I wouldn't buy an RV from the Florida area because of rust and corrosion. I would look to the southwest instead. Miles

RE: Travel nurse thinking of buying a TT....advice appreciated!!

Hello; my wife is a nurse at UCH and is considering turning into a traveler some day. You don't say where you are at in Colorado, but there are plenty of dog daycare places around the Denver area. Miles

RE: Outside storage door

I have a similar problem with the door to my generator compartmant. My plan is to take off the inner and outer skin of the door, install new wood, then put the door back together. Maybe this would work for you. Miles
Son of Norway 07/06/14 12:00am Tech Issues

I have had both kinds in my RV's. There are tradeoffs to both. I don't know if trade-in value is a concern for you or not, it doesn't really affect my choice. As to your questions: 1) No-one on a forum can give you a good answer. You need to do your own research and test the refrigerator model you intend to buy. Take a clamp-on ammeter and measure start-up and running draw. Figure out an average duty-cycle figure for your operating environment. Look-up the efficiency of your inverter. Calculate a daily amp-hour figure and match that against your available capacity and recharge capability. The start-up draw frequently causes problems with this set-up. 2) I don't use one. 3) I would use a pure-sine wave inverter for the reefer and electronics. 4) I've never had any problems. Miles

RE: Dometic Fridge will not turn on

Did you check the fuses on the circuit board? Miles

RE: Almost settled on Colorado's Front Range

With your rig I would head up to Rainbow Lakes outside of Nederland. Bring your hiking and fishing gear. Miles
